Blue Star Museums.... Military Discounts!!


We are planning our cross country trip in a few weeks and I remembered that the Blue Star Museums Initiative is a program that offers free or discounted admission to military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  Yay!!



The 2013 season will kick off May 21st, but there are museums across the country that offer deals throughout the year.  Check it out!

Pittsburgh Marathon and Half Marathon



We had a great time in Pittsburgh last weekend!   Not only was the weather beautiful, but it was a relaxing getaway for Travis and me.  This was the first half marathon for me this year and I was nervous about it, but it went well and I'm glad it's over.... until the next time.
